Kunert, Alfred
1896-1900. Hardcover. Good. Extraordinary manuscript with irresistible original Folk Art illustrations. Folio, 34 by 22 cm. Unpaginated, 39 pages with content. At least 15 of these pages with substantial illustrations. The album is a collection of what amount to birthday cards that were created for members of a hiking or outing club based in Berlin. These aren't cards as people today would visualize them; rather, they are long sheets of paper (or card stock) onto which were drawn, with colored pencil or crayon, or painted, artwork and also written some verse, which we assume was original generally-speaking. Several of the pages have a glazing, which has the effect of making the penciled drawings seem painted. The artwork was probably all done by Alfred Kunert, who signed or initialed much of it. Only a few small examples, mostly just page ornamentation, is unsigned and could possibly have been done by someone else, although we find that prospect doubtful. All the artwork is disarmingly naive, with much of the strange wondrous quality one associates with outsider art. Nothing is proportion. The buildings look as if they could serve as the set a German expressionist movie such as "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari". The people are rendered with a child-like primitivism. Many of the pictures depict a troupe of men, and sometimes women, strolling and lolling in rural settings. Often they are clutching steins or large goblets of beer or schnaps. They could be napping, smoking a cigar, gabbing away -- all the things one might do on a lazy sunny afternoon at a picnic. … [Click Below for Full Description]

ELLIS, Havelock & J. A. Symonds
Leipzig: Georg H. Wigand's Verlag (1896). 308pp. Leipzig: Georg H. Wigand's Verlag (1896). 308pp. The true first edition of the author's classic text, Sexual Inversion, completed in collaboration with John Addington Symonds. Symonds and Ellis began working together on the book in June of 1892 and continued until Symonds' death in April of the following year. Following the arrest and conviction of Oscar Wilde in 1895, Ellis despaired of finding an English publisher for this book, which Symonds had insisted must be the first volume in his collaborator's Studies in the Psychology of Sex. This, the correct first edition, was published by Ellis' friend Hans Kurella in Leipzig in 1896, and acclaimed in the German press as a pioneering work. The first edition in English was brought out the following year, but suppressed before publication by Symonds' literary executor, Horatio Brown. A very good copy bound in contemporary marbled paper and linen boards, handmade label on spine, light edgewear. Quite rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

Robley, Major-General [Horatio Gordon]
London: Chapman and Hall, Limited, 1896. Very good plus.. Original gilt-stamped brown cloth boards, with decoration stamped in black. Black endpapers. Illustrated with 180 plates and frontispiece.[22], 216 pages. Mild edgewear and scuffing to boards at extremities. Spine lightly sunned. Light foxing, primarily to title page and surrounding leaves. Hinges sound. First edition, the classic study of Maori tattooing, profusely illustrated with photographs and Robley's own drawings. Robley, an amateur artist with a deep interest in Maori culture, had a genuine passion for recording the intricate designs, techniques, and history of the intricate art of tā moko; he was also a soldier and, notoriously, a collector of mokomakai: preserved, tattooed human heads, sought after and debased as objects of commerce and display by European and American collectors and museums alike. Robley's meticulous illustrations, photographs, and descriptions have become an invaluable resource for historians and revivalists of traditional Maori arts, preserving unique images of an art form and cultural practice that, at the very same time, imperialistic forces were beginning to efface. An indispensable study.

Kokoschka, Oskar, Maler und Graphiker (1886-1980).
An den emigrierten Kunsthistoriker und Gründer des Phaidon-Verlages Ludwig Goldscheider (1896-1973) in London: "[...] Lieber Freund Wir hatten Riesenfreude über Ihre Karte und daß Sie zu uns kommen. Bitte ja! Bis zum 16. Oktober sind wir Zuhause, Telefon steht am Briefkopf, genügt einen Tag zuvor telefonieren damit wir Ihnen ein Hotel besorgen. Möchte Sie so gerne sehen! Aber, bitte, auf keinen Fall im Burgtheater meine magische Inscenierung von Raimund's 'Moisasurs Zauberfluch' anzuschauen, die fast jeden Tag gespielt wird. Die Wiener sind auf dem Kopf gestanden, man hatte mir, vielleicht mit Absicht! eine schier unlösbare Aufgabe da gestellt, wegen der vielen Verwandlungen ist das Stück nie aufgeführt worden. Ich bin furchtbar neugierig was Sie dazu sagen werden!!! Kommen Sie aber wirklich her nicht wieder vorbeifahren, nun scheint die Sonne wieder nach acht Tagen unaufhörlichem Regen und ich habe noch ein Portrait hier stehen, das ich gleich nach Salzburg machen müsste weil der Mann bloß drei Wochen hier sein konnte. Ihre Tochter war wieder nicht bei mir in Salzburg, wahrscheinlich muß ich den Kurs aufgeben weil es, gerade zu der Zeit, von Anfang bis zum Ende, Tag und Nacht, gießt! Es geht einfach nicht. Nun, Burgtheater und Wiedersehen hier in Villeneuve Mit Liebe und Dankbarkeit für Ihr Zumirhalten [...]" - Goldscheider veröffentlichte 1963 im eigenen Verlag eine Kokoschka-Monographie, die mehrere Auflagen und Übersetzungen (1966 deutsch) erlebte.

Nevada and California. Various dates and formats, 1862-1896. The usual folds and light age toning, occasional light wear. Overall, Very Good. 1) Autograph letter from the French banking firm Lazard Freres to Adolph Sutro, dated at Paris, February 3, 1874, signed "Lazard Freres", regarding financing for the Sutro Tunnel. "We are at your disposal to telegraph whatever you think proper. We are happy to know that in spite of the failure with the public perception, you have means sufficient to work ahead without interruption for thirty months." Also mentions elections for board members. European investment in the Sutro Tunnel had been essential for its completion, "Final success was guaranteed when the British bankers Robert and Hugh McCalmont invested heavily in Sutro Tunnel stock." - American National Biography. 2) Autograph letter, signed, from Virginia (City), July 19, 1874 from John Nugent to Sutro. A letter concerning Sutro's ill-fated political bid to replace the retiring William Stewart. Nugent writes: "Last night the Republican County Committee met and. overwhelming majority for Sharon."

First edition. 8vo. pp. [xii], 243, 4 (ads.), 32 (ads.); 12 illustrations; a near-fine copy in the original pictorial cloth, gilt, bumped to corners.

Bull's account of the Norwegian Antarctic expedition of 1894 -5, sent out by Svend Foyn to investigate the region's whaling possibilities, includes a description of the first recorded landing on the Continent at Cape Adare. Bull was one of four to do so, the others being Captian Kristensen, Borchgrevink and Captain Jensen.

1896. Up for sale is a lovely set of Robert Louis Stevenson books. All of the volumes are in very good shape (the usual shelf wear)These volumes are cloth-bound with gilt embossed titles on the spine (looks like brown paper but could be leather?). The Tops of the pages are gilt as well. On the front of each book, in gilt, is stamped the monogram of RLS. The set is mostly printed in 1895, however oddly enough Volume 1 (as well as Volumes 17, 18, & 19) are printed in 1896. I'm guessing that those volumes were bought by the original owner after the fact (perhaps they were bought in a series over time beginning with volume 2). At any rate the off year volumes look nearly identical to the others making them a very handsome set. Volume 12 is missing!! Shipping is FREE. Vol 1 New Arabian Nights (1896) Vol 2 Treasure Island (1895) Vol 3 More New Arabian Nights/The Dynamiter/The Story of a Lie (1895) Vol 4 Prince Otto/Island Nights' Entertainments/Father Damien (1895) Vol 5 Kidnapped (1895) Vol 6 David Balfour (1895) Vol 7 The Merry Men/Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde (1895) Vol 8 The Back Arrow (1895) Vol 9 The Master of Ballantrae (1895) Vol 10 The Wrecker (1895) Vol 11 The Wrong Box/The Ebbtide (1895) Vol 13 Virginibus Puerisque Memories and Portraits Vol 14 Familiar Studies of Men and Books (1895) Vol 15 The Amateur Immigrant Across the Plains/The Silverado Squatters (1895) Vol 16 A Child's Garden of Verses/Underwood's Ballads (1895) Vol 17 Vailima Letters (1896) Vol 18 memoir of Fleeming Jenkin/Records of a Family of Engineers (1896) Vol 19 In the South Seas/A Footnote to History (1896).

Haynes, Frank Jay: Purdy, J.H, and William Seward Webb
[St. Paul], 1896. [15]pp. plus forty-two photographs on [22] leaves, each measuring 7 x 9 1/4 inches. Oblong tall octavo. Contemporary dark green morocco, gilt, gilt inner dentelles, raised bands, a.e.g., by Neumann Bros. Spine sun- faded, extremities lightly worn. Half of one of the front fly leaves torn away. Internally clean and fresh, with clear, sharp images. Very good. In a cloth slipcase and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A rare and handsome photographic album documenting a lavish trip to northwestern Wyoming in 1896 to shoot big game. The photographs were taken by the outstanding early photographer of Yellowstone and Wyoming, F. Jay Haynes, and feature the natural beauty of Yellowstone and the region, as well as railroad magnate W.S. Webb's hunting party and its endeavors. Among the excursion party were some two dozen enlisted men of the 9th Cavalry, a troop of African- American "Buffalo Soldiers." It is likely that this album was created as a souvenir for the members of the excursion only, and was thus created in a very limited number (perhaps five or six copies). The hunting expedition lasted from Sept. 12 to Oct. 11, 1896, and was organized and funded by William Seward Webb (1851-1926), who is featured in many of the photographs. Webb was a financier and railroad tycoon who married into the Vanderbilt family, and was prominent in New York society. He was also the Inspector General of the Vermont state militia and a founder of the Sons of the American Revolution. J.H. Purdy (with Webb, identified in the expedition roster as a "tenderfoot") is the aut … [Click Below for Full Description]

Slatin, Rudolf C., Pasha
Edward Arnold, 1896. First edition. Hardcover. Large 8vo. [7], viii-xviii, [2], 636, [2] pp. Green cloth with gold lettering and rules on the spine, a decoration in gilt of Slatin escaping from Sudan on a camel on the front board; top edge gilt. Illustrated with a frontispiece photogravure of Rudolf C. Slatin, a color fold-out map in the rear showing Mahdist control over the region in 1895, a color fold-out plan of Khartoum, and twenty-one black and white plates illustrating scenes from Slatin's time as governor of Sudan, and subsequent capture and imprisonment at the hands of the Mahdists. Oxford DNB, "Slatin, Sir Rudolf Carl von". Pasha Slatin began his career in Sudan as governor of Dara, in south-western Darfur. Less than a year later he would go on to become governor-general of the whole province. In 1881, Muhammad Ahmad ibn 'Abdullahi declared himself the Mahdi of the Sudan, and with his followers escaped from Aba Island on the White Nile to the Nuba Mountains. Slatin led his troops against the uprising, a quasi civil war, as numerous tribal and religious leaders in Darfur joined the Mahdi. In early 1883 the Mahdi took al-'Ubayd, capital of Kordofan, and Darfur was cut off from Khartoum. To make a last bid at defeating the uprising, Slatin converted to Islam to increase the loyalty of his troops. When the capital of Darfur, al-Fasher, was captured, Slatin surrendered (later on in 1883). At his surrender at Dara, Slatin was renamed 'Abd al-Qadir Salatin. Slatin was prisoner to two Caliphs during 1884 until his escape in 1895. Though Slatin characterized the Caliph as c … [Click Below for Full Description]

CRUCELLI, F. [DOYLE, Charles Altamont]
Edinburgh. Maclachlan and Stewart. 1896. First edition. 4to. Bound in publisher's dark green cloth covered bevelled boards, titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board. Light edgewear, some slight frayiong to head of spine; bright, clean and handsome. All edges gilt. Internally clean. A bizarre and unusual collection of verses, riddles, songs and fables, some of which it has to be said are markedly racist by today's standards (if not actually intended to be at the time because apparently being a weapons-grade muppet to people who weren't exactly like you in every respect was just good, clean fun), but which were probably the height of comic subtlety in 1896, which leads me to believe I'd sooner chew my own leg off than attend a recital of such gibberish. Subjects other than the fact that black people were vastly amusing to late Victorians covered by this volume include comic Scottish verses, rhymes about golf (the only redeeming feature of said pastime being that the practitioners of it are frequently struck by lightning), curling and the unforgiving and somewhat provocative behaviour of Sweet Nell the Grocer's Daughter. Illustrated throughout with varying degrees of artistic beauty and horrifying crassness by Charles Altamont Doyle. This is a most curious item and in fact criticism of it (not that I'll stop, obviously) is like someone one hundred years in the future finding a Viz annual and a Conservative Party internal memo and deciding therefore that we were all sexually perverse bigoted stereotypes with the charm and appeal of a really bad escalator accident; … [Click Below for Full Description]
